>> welcome back to another i-team investigation. after someone set fire to her house two years ago, brenda lucas lost the home she's lived in for more than 40 years. >> she healed from the injuries suffered in the fire but while lucas was trying to figure out how to rebuild and come back from devastation, the city put a lien on the house for $8,000. >> i'm figure to stand my ground. i own this land. i own that home. i'm a taxpayer and i'm a united states citizen. >> when 62-year-old brenda lucas doesn't stay with family or friends, she calls this tent home, camping here with few comfort with a place to cook and a place to lie down. she doesn't want to give up on the place she's called home since 1969. >> i didn't want to be a burden on other people. >> lucas had a house on this land on beaumont street but in february of 2011, someone set fire to her home. >> attempted to open the door to the first level and there i saw
6:47 am
a column of fire at the front and i just watched my life go up in flames. >> the baltimore fire department ruled the cause of the fire arson. lucas, her daughter and two grandchildren made it out of the house alive. lucas had to be hospitalized for several days for smoke inhalation and minor burns. she has recovered but what has happened since the fire continues to be an open wound for lucas. >> i needed help from wherever it could come. i needed everything. i stood in need of everything because i had lost everything and i said i don't want the city to just level my house to the ground and pitch some grass seed and let mrs. lucas go off into the sunset. >> in the days following the fire, the city relocated lucas and her family to a hotel. there for a week and while she was gone, the city sent her a code violation notice saying she needed to secure the shell of the home and have it razed.
6:48 am
lucas, retired, on a fixed income, didn't have homeowner's so she couldn't pay for the demolition herself so she asked the city to give her some time to find someone who would help her. before she found the help, she drove by her property and saw the house being demolished and lucas gets this bill for more than $7,200 for the demolition, money she didn't have, then a lien was placed on the property she paid $10,000 for in 1969. the lien was for nearly $80,000. >> $80,000 -- $8,000. >> it took me a 30-year mortgage of working to pay that off and when my house was demolished and i received a bill for almost that same amount, it would take me a lifetime to come up with that. it's heartless, it's ruthless. >> the city is not sympathetic to her plight.

baltimore county as an eighth grade student pulled a loaded gun on his teacher and classmates. for the second time in three weeks, a county school had an incident with a student bringing a gun to school. the 13-year-old student has been charged as a juvenile. the teacher is appreciated for restraining the student until authorities arrived. we expect our teachers to educate our children. but to step between a class of students and loaded gun is above and beyond the call of duty. school superintendent dr. dallas dance says he will establish a new office of safety and security and provide hand-held metal detectors to resource officers. that is about as much as a school system can do. the responsibility rests with parents and adults to obey the law and secure weapons so children don't have access to them. it's the law and a responsibility.

>> if you're like many people, the 3:00 p.m. time in the afternoon is one of the most challenging of the day. you're at your desk at work and slump hits. how do you beat it? shop rite dietitian aaron paceac is here with suggestions for keeping your engine running all day. what happens at 3:00? >> i think there are three different scenarios for people, the reason for the mid afternoon slump. one of them can be from hunger. one is probably because the person's living a high-stress life, not getting enough sleep, they have bad carbohydrate cravings and the last one is the person that out of habit reaches for a snack around 3:00 p.m. we will talk about all three ways and how to avoid the pitfalls. the first is maybe the person who, they eat a light breakfast, maybe just doing a granola bar and veggie sadly with protein,
7:27 am
not really getting carbohydrates in, any good fiber. and by the time 3:00 p.m. hits, they're starving. they didn't eat enough calories. i did a makeover of their meals, i boosted the meals, made them around 400 calories or so, added more protein, more fiber, things that can make them feel full and that way when 3:00 hits, they're probably not hungry. >> so don't just have oatmeal but have oatmeal with berries. >> berries, flax seed, almonds. if you're doing sadly, i put a whole grain, millet, avocado, pumpkin seeds for healthy sats that are -- fats that are more saviating. this is the person that doesn't get enough sleep and all day long they're craving food. the reason is hormonal. they have an increase in the hunger hormone and decrease in leptin, the hormone that makes you feel full. they have increases in cortisol,
7:28 am
the stress hormone so they're very hungry all day long. these are good options, a mixture of carbs, protein and fat. you could do greek yogurt and banana, string cheese and popcorn, even dark chocolate with nuts. these are some of my favorite bars, the kaishi or lara bars and whole grain crackers with cottage cheese. >> can you keep some of these things at your desk so you're not going to the candy jar. >> yeah, put them in easily accessible places, a drawer, your car, your purse, the gym bag so you reach for the good stuff instead of the vending machine. this is the person at 3:00 that out of habit run to the vending machine. you want to create new habits, healthier habits.
7:29 am
you can try drinking more water or tea, throw your sneakers in your bag, go for a quick 10-minute walk, bring a hand weight or exercise band and do exercises in the office so you're doing something productive at 3:00 p.m. rather than reaching for a snickers bar. >> let's say charlene does put nuts in there and healthy things in there, they just go quickly. thank you so much for coming, in aaron. >> thank you. >> 7:29, 55 degrees on tv hill. we have more news coming up. stay with us.

7:33 am
their leadership crisis, who they want to be, versus u.s. policy, but it's a very dangerous time in relations and then there's the tension over iran with israel right now so we will talk to the prime minister of israel, benjamin netanyahu. >> the question is, is israel still our friend and vice versa? >> no question that they are and attempts to suggest otherwise simply don't represent all the facts between the two administrations, but there is tension there between what the british prime minister wants america to do and what america is prepared to do about iran right now. there is a shared goal to stop iran from getting a nuclear weapon but it's now you get there and i think the israelis are increasingly concerned that this administration in their judgment is not willing to take a tougher stand and say hey, here's a line in the sand when
7:34 am
the israelis appear ready to do so. >> the president, dealing with all of this as the election is less than two months away. how does candidate obama deal with this? >> candidate obama is president obama and i think that that's the upside and the downside. be scrutinized for your policy but you're also in a position to act and not just make arguments from the sideline which any candidate opposing incumbent presidents will do. this opens up an area of scrutiny about obama foreign policy, if are sure. >> don't forget to watch "meet the press" later this morning following 11 news at 9:00 a.m. baltimore mayor stephanie rawlings-blake will be our q&a guest this morning. >> still ahead on 11 news, barks joins us with a pet looking for a home. >> elect governor romney and win a cruise?

7:41 am
into apps, figure out where they've been and what they're doing. lot that will happen with these udid's, a great playground for hack stores experiment. >> apple says programmers are moving away from using udid numbers in apps but for those who were compromised. experts say the only solution may be to buy a new phone or new ipad. that's too bad. scammers are gearing up for this year's presidential election from robo calls offering a free cruise to promises that president obama will pay your utility bill. angie barnett from the better business bureau is here with advice for voters. good morning. >> good morning. >> he's going to pay my utility bill? >> the world is a scam. it's amazing. >> let's talk about some of these scenarios out there. the free cruise? >> election scams are upon us. free cruise. they'll call you on your phone at home, or cell phone, and ask you to take a public opinion
7:42 am
poll. that's important because we are looking at these statistics. they'll lure you in by saying you'll win a free cruise. what they want, ultimately, they'll ask for your credit card because you have to pay port fees and certain taxes for it so they'll look for that credit card, debt card number. that's to rip you off. >> that's lovely. president obama is not going to pay your utility bills. >> yes, but a lot of marylanders have received emails, phone calls, solicitations and this really happened, in which president obama would give them a grant to cover utility bills. this spiked in the middle of the heat wave in the summer. people thought they were getting $1,000. what they want is your bank routing number, information, your driver's license. they'll say they'll deposit $1,000 in your account but their goal is to take your money out of your account.
7:43 am
>> fund-raising calls for political donation that are not really. >> whether they're leaving messages or calling, asking you to donate to the campaign. a lot of people want to do that but if you do it through a solicittization from a random call, what they want is your credit card information under false pretenss of so doing. the other thing we are hearing, people are receiving calls about, are they registered to vote and they want you to give your social security number to verify you're registered number. >> don't ever give your social security number. >> ever, ever. >> if the government needs your social security number, they'll send you a letter. >> nobody's going to ask you for that information so don't give it but that's what marylanders are being hit with. >> some -- sometimes you're asked for that social security number when you're asked at

>> this is a wbal-tv 11 editorial with president and general manager dan joerres. >> as ravens fans celebrate the season opening win, the blistering performance of joe flacco and the offense, and ed reed's record setting interception, we must pause and remember none of this would be possible without art modell. the man who helped launch the modern era of the nfl was the answer to the prayers of a city left without football and a legacy when the colts were moved to indianapolis. reviled in cleveland for moving the browns to baltimore, he was revered here but not just for football. it was his numerous contributions to our community and the example he set for his players that will be the lasting tribute to a man that has not been short on tributes in death. for more on the legacy of art modell, all he did for our city and the latest on the ravens, we invite you to log on to wbaltv.com.
